[SP/Coop] This Is War 2014

Post by Guest on Mon 17 Dec 2012, 17:04

This Is War 2014
by tvig0r0us

Current version: 2.6
Featuring PowerUp v3 by dewi316




This is war is an all out war scenario that plays itself out on the island of Skira. As you move embark on your journey, you can recruit soldiers into your squad and approach your objectives in any way you choose. This also includes a hotkey system and command system giving you dynamic objectives to accomplish throughout the entire game.

This is the second coming of the full freeroam all out war scenario. In this mission you can play along with up to 3 other players in a dynamic environment where giving ground can be just as important as taking ground.

To install This is War simply extract the folder named "This Is War" from the zip file and place it in the "data_win/missions" folder found inside your main game directory.  You will also need to run OFDR Hotkeys to access the hotkey functions from inside the game.   If you do not have the hotkey app simply copy "OFDR-Hotkeys.exe" to your main game directory.  Create a shortcut to it on your desktop and run it as administrator when you start Dragon Rising.

v2.5 fixes several objective points being buried in the ground and a crash that occured in coop play when a player mounted a static weapon.  I recommend completely removing older versions of This Is War and restarting with a fresh install of the misison. As always, please report the bugs and thank you for the bug report on the previous version.

v2.6 adds PowerUp v3 module by dewi316 and changes the code responsible for spawning weapon emplacements and props in the hopes that it will prevent the coop crashing when a player mounts a weapon emplacement.  In addition, more startup zones will continue to be added.

Todo list:
- fix placement of pla defense asset at Borosovka

Hotkeys will be available from your numpad keys and will allow you to do the following.
Hotkeys:
0- Save game data/Create a checkpoint
1- Recruit soldier to your fireteam
2- Recruit fireteam to your squad
3- Dismiss fireteams from your squad
4- Advance time 1 hour
5- Cycle weather type
6- Cycle fog density
7- Turn scoreboard off/on
8- Turn on/off the onscreen debugging (off by default)
9- Turn on/off the debug logging feature (off by default)

This is an all out war scenario where the ai will move to objective areas and fight on their own, but the player can recruit ai to their squad and fireteam. Your objectives will be displayed along with information regarding the status of the capture points on the island. Just follow the objectives displayed on the screen. If you want you can also move onto other areas of the island. Provided the us doesn't control everything in the area you will find a fight.

Due to the efficiency of the new OFDR Mission Editor Expansion this mission has doubled in size and intensity featuring prop built locations all over the island in addition to all of the locations you might be used to.  Like all of my missions I intend to fully support and bugfix any problems found within This is War so if you find a problem, please report it.  Also, I've loaded so many prop locations onto the map you might run into something here or there that's a bit out of place, say a tent in the air or ammo crates half way buried in the ground, please let me know if you stumble on something like this as well.

As always, have fun!!

Ugh... found a stinkin bug in the external save system. If you have a campaign save it should not be an issue, but if you restart with the external save file it will not initialize the entire island. An oversight when I updated. I'll fix and post soon as I get a chance. Sorry.

Cheers Very Happy

This Is War has been updated again. As a result of the mission feeder incident, the file structure was changed from the original and the new release was not updated with the new structure causing a catastrophic failure in the mission right from the start. This has been fixed and the current mission version is now v2.4. Sorry if anyone downloaded that mess. It should work fine now.

Cheers Very Happy

Hey guys,

I have a small question concerning this mission. If I start it as Campaign, I appear within 5 man squad... and with no crates, vehicles and other team proceeding to their AOs. Is there something I do wrong or it suppose to be like that due to balancing things out for COOP?
As Single Mission though it generally speaking Kicks Ass:)

P.S. It happened on version 2.4 of This Is War.

It sounds like you may have multiple installs. I suggest having a look at your missions folder and making sure there is only one instance of this is war. Also check the mission folder. If there is a settings file in there try to delete it. If all else fails, remove all traces of tiw and start with the 2.4 version from scratch. Let me know your results.

Cheers Very Happy

edit - Just to follow up I checked the files in the download and they appear to be the properly updated files. It's rather odd that it appears to work fine as a single mission but breaks when played as a campaign. If this problem persists, please let me know as I want to get it fixed asap. I appreciate the report.

Anyone watching this thread, if you play TIW, please let me know if v2.4 has worked ok for you, or are you experiencing similar problems. Thanks.

Hi Tvig,

I've gave it a go and had a good 4 hours blast on it as Campaign:) I uninstalled anything related to This Is War in my game's directory and it worked like a charm:)SmileSmile

After i reached around 20% of Control i got some CTD just when I was going from NW PLA Bunker to 700 meters NE further location.

P.S. I've noticed so far 2 (possibly) bugged tasks:

1) Taranay : Retrieve PLA Intelligence Assets at Northern gate, somewhere around car and tank wreck. Could not see any box and always seemed to have around 40 meters distance to it.

2) 400 East from Lanstrov on the hill side: The same task, somewhere between military tents, invisible box, similar distance to that box wherever you go in it's direction (nearby).


P.P.S.  About that CTD, I'm taking in account that I run this game for good 2 and half year on a laptop (with not very good specs for advanced gaming) and it tends to be resource hungry everytime I start some more demanding things;) not mentioning OFDR with it's huge Island...

Thanks for the report JurekCello78. I went through the mssn and found all kinds of points buried under the ground. I can't believe I did that. I suppose when I was expanding the mission I copy pasted a point from one of the coastal locations and it just slipped right by me that all the points were asl. Anyhow, sorry again to all who downloaded this mission. What a mess. I'm getting it straightened out(or trying to) and I will release a forum only version for all to try out before I make a full release. Thanks again for the report and keep em coming. I want to get it all straight so you can enjoy it without dealing with stupid bugs.

Cheers Very Happy

Howdy again:)

I've reached about 32% Control Points and captured most of a western part of Skira. Now heading from bunkers on the Northern Coast, North from Malkovo, back to Malkovo to recap it from PLA Smile, through night, ended up at 05:00 AM (Skira Time).
Night time ingame is extremely intense and dropping arty on close targets is difficult, but sometimes its all which left to save your own ass Very Happy, and what a pleasure to see whole squads whiped out with accurate (panicXD) mortar mission. Plus always need to to stay frosty when going uphill expecting hostiles anytime Smile Smile .

Ok, I could write on and on about gameplay for hours XD, but can't write for others, I would love to hear anyone else having some tale from front;)


P.S. Back to business: I've found next possible burried Int.Ass. Box: It's in the bunker SW (around 400meters) from Malkovo, left side of the main western road.

This is War v2.5 rc1

Post by Guest on Mon 07 Jan 2013, 12:40

Hi all, I've released a new version of This is War that should fix all of the known bugs (keeps fingers crossed). It's been in testing for some time and seems to be pretty solid to this point. This is a forum only release candidate and if it proves stable it will be the next full release version in the future. Thanks for playing!

Cheers Very Happy
